And on to Sundre, AB to visit friends Neil & Edith Harper. They have a large beautiful home, lots of acres and trees and some neat cars. Thank you for the warm and enjoyable visit and many yummy meals! Also enjoyed seeing Bill & Ange and Mel & Ann Hills for dinner, along with Jerry & Sally another time. Sure like seeing our SKP Friends.
Enjoy the farming areas of Alberta and wide open skies……..
Our summer travels aren’t over yet! More to see and enjoy on the way south to AZ.
8-23-13 – Always a favorite walk is to Johnson Canyon – just along 1A. Oh my the place is packed. Cars parked from here to there and along the highway. But still enjoyed the walk and views. The river flows right below our feet.
And end the day with a beautiful sunset!

8-18-13 It’s not far from Dawson Creek to Grand Prairie to visit with friends George and Jeanette Forest. Thank you for the warm welcome and great hospitality. Hill and dale to Grande Cache on Hwy #40 – what a delightful museum and visitor center.And on to Jasper National Park – absolutely gorgeous scenery. Sunwapta Falls --- All that water. All that power. And the dense rock erodes minimally thru the year.
8-21-13 The skies are blue – the weather perfect! So off we go. Lake Moraine continues to be my (Susie’s) #1 Favorite place. We have visited many times and it is still very magical. The rock flour from glaciers remains suspended in the water to give it that beautiful color of turquoise.
But my oh my the crowds of people. Cars are parked for a long way along the road. They are monitoring the number of cars that go out to let just that many in.
Happy 49th Anniversary
Lake Louise is all filled to the brim with tourist. We’re not quite ready for the walk to the Tea House (~2 hrs walk up hill!?) so we drove down the road to Hector Lake for a relaxing – people free lake view and lunch.
A beautiful day in the neighborhood!

8-17-13 Another good nights’ sleep on the Alaskan Hwy heading south. Looked for a big pull off, of course didn’t find one, but this morning we past several large perfect places to park. Oh well….. on to Dawson Creek – roads are now very hilly with long straight stretches. Trees and roadways are still green.
Time to relax for football…….

Stopped at Rancheria Falls – a nice boardwalk thru the boreal forest to the falls.
A nice stop for the night at km 880 with a view of Liard River 880 kmThen on to beautiful Muncho Lake – Strawberry Flats Campground.Decided to take off a few layers of mud and dirt. The RV was terribly dirty from all the heaves and dirt after Tok. Dennis – look, Denny even cleaned the wheels! And you know what happened after that don’t you? Yep it rained! But what a view!
